6:15 pm
supporters of the proposition don't buy that argument. >> we're concerned about high rise developments along the water front. >> reporter: the sierra club opposes any major development. >> can you imagine the san francisco water front with the series of high rises like the empire state building along the water front? that's the concern. >> reporter: at today's hearing, the judge signaled the matter would likely go to troil in september. leeann melendez, "abc7 news." east day firefighters are getting help this fourth of july.

6:25 pm
the top 50. they may be surprising, though. we have mill valley at number 19. >> i think it's a beach town, because it is next to the water. >> reporter: most of the vanetia shoreline is mud flats, although you can find a small sandy beach that keeps these kids happy in the summer. we flew over mill valley, where residents may be confused. the town has a rocky shoreline, though it's just ten miles to stinson beach. it's based on rankings, affordability, weather, safety, education, health, and quality of life. now, some may take these findings with a grain of sand. after all, my favorite beach down hideaway is not on the list. eric, i'm sure everybody has
6:26 pm
their favorite beach towns. >> thank you, kristen. it's starting to feel like the fourth of july. fireworks started today. coming up, the simple difference what makes a firework legal or illegal. and next, michael finney gets results for a woman dealing with a car rental company that's been named in a class action lawsuit. and "abc7 news" is proud to take part in the san francisco homeless project for the second year. tonight, we focus on the young people and where they're turning to find a way to get off the streets.

live where you live. this is "abc7 news." >> welcome back. "abc7 news" is joining more than 30 media organizations for the san francisco homeless project to raise awareness about the issue. >> on "abc7 news" at 4:00, we told you why so many homeless youth come to san francisco. they're seeking refuge and acceptance. but when they arrive, many struggle to find a way out. >> there's no shelter or clearinghouse to steer them in the right direction. and the need is great.
6:30 pm
>> reporter: how does one end up at 18 homeless? >> well, for many factors. for myself, it was family of eight with a single mom who couldn't support everyone. >> reporter: bela black came to san francisco from bakersfield. >> he didn't know where was a safe place and you don't know where or who is going to do what. >> reporter: today she has housing thanks to the help she received from larkin street youth services. one of a handful of organizations in the city that specifically works with homeless young adults under 25. cheryl adams is the executive director. >> throughout the city, we have a number of different housing programs to help young stabilize. we work on their goals and plans, ideally being able to launch from that into independence. >> reporter: young adults need more individual attention than older adults. >> we have literally thousands of young people who need safety
6:31 pm
and sanctuary, and they need a center. >> reporter: the city has built three navigation centers. these are clearinghouses for homeless people. getting them connected to services and eventually into housing. another center will open soon and two more are planned. young adults may use the centers, but none are specifically for them. the centers have proven to be very successful. 79% of the people who enter end up in stable housing. >> the next navigation center should be for young people. >> reporter: san francisco supervisor jeff shy has beenn pushing for more money to be spent on services. >> we need 25,000 square >> reporter: the district is where many end up. >> there's nowhere to drop in and sit down and relax and get
6:32 pm
case management. >> reporter: kristen knows many of the people who call the streets here home. he runs taking it to the streets, a nonprofit that puts kids to work cleaning the streets and finds them housing. he said the area's only late-night drop-in center closed three years ago. >> the closing was a tragedy. >> reporter: for 12 years, the homeless youth alliance was h hait street. a rent incross made it unaffordable and they've been looking for a new location ever since. >> it's not that they don't exist, land lords are unwilling to work with people who are poor. >> reporter: that has proved true for navigation centers, as well. >> it all sounds like a good idea to everybody. but they just don't want to hear it. >> it needs to be in a place that's accessible to public transportation, and that it's going to make sense for the
6:33 pm
youth. >> reporter: the mayor's point man on homelessness says a navigation center for young people is in the works. >> if we're looking for a site for that. >> reporter: but he won't say where or when it might open. in the meantime, young adults like bela black will have to navigate their way on their own. >> being homeless is not fun. >> reporter: in san francisco, leanne melendez, "abc7 news." >> "abc7 news" is proud to participate in the san francisco homeless project for the second year in a row. last year we helped reunite a homeless woman with her family. find all of our stories and ways to help at the fremont police department has reopened a decades old missing person's case. 25-year-old sherry disappeared february 27, 1989 on dakota road. she and her boyfriend had a daughter together that was five years old. investigators reopened the case

6:36 pm
jersey to investigate payless for what the bbb calls a pattern of issues in sales practices, cntracts, and billing with consumers. also, it faces a proposed chas action lawsuit, which claims payless tricked customers for paying for things they specifically declined. fees from these add-on products, not rentals, are payless' bread and butter. we reached out, but a company attorney said it would not comment on pending litigation. but payless did help out in jean's case, wiping out that extra $468 charge, telling us, we were not aware of the second reservation until she contacted us again. because the reservation was more than six months old, there was a delay if reviewing the case and processing the refund. >> 7 on your side was amazing. it's such an aid to the
6:37 pm
consumer. you're great. >> reporter: the judge in the lawsuit has denied a request to force this case into binding arbitration. the judge said customers did not find out about the arbitration clause until afterwards. the case is moving forward in court. >> michael, thank you very much. all right. hot, sunny days can create the worst conditions for firefighters. but that same sun channeled into a way to save money. >> a picture from the south bay camera. spencer is tracking the warmer temperatures
